Knot energy spectrum in the JPA 2014 Highlights special collection

Work on the derivation of the groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links is selected as one of the best JPA 2014 papers and is included in the 2014 JPA special collection Highlights.

The editorial board of the Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical selects our paper on the groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links as one of the best research works of 2014, including a special mention in the JPA 2014 Highlights compilation. Our work is reviewed by the Fluid and Plasma Theory section editor, Professor Gregory Falkovich of the Weizmann Institute of Sciences, Israel.

Groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links

J Phys. A cover dedicated to the paper "On the groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links", published in May 2014.

Work done in collaboration with Prof. Renzo L. Ricca on the groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links is featured on the front cover of the 2014 May issue of the Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. The spectra of tight knots and links are found to follow an almost identical power law for increasing topological complexity, demonstrating remarkable generic similarities between knot and link families, up to the first few hundreds crossings. Results are based on an analytic expression for the constrained minimum energy state and numerical data obtained by the RIDGERUNNER tightening algorithm developed by Ashton et. al. (2011).
